August: 31 Days Isn't Enough
Oh, so many new happenings to share...
Let's start with the goodies: August is around the corner and it is a BIG month for us. For one, we plan to have the book into and back from the printer by the end of the month. We've recently begun laying out a PDF version of the pages and I've gotta say, it's lookin' good (BIG ups to my partner, Erik, for coming with the goods on a regular basis).
I've sent out new info requests to the $25 and $60 tier folks. You may notice when you get your rewards in the mail that there's a postcard instead of a sticker. DON'T PANIC. Because we went over our original goal, we decided to up the ante and print the p-cards instead. Personally, I think they're far more useful and substantial than stickers. You can mail them to your friends if you'd like! Or keep them for your records... (Feel free to lodge any complaints/concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org if, for some reason, you disagree).
Lastly (for now), we'll be featured in an installation/exhibition as part of our Weisman Award from Sept. 6 through November 4. More info on that later, but *Chicago people* mark your calendars.
P.S. We were recently interviewed by the good people at Sixty Inches From Center. Below are a couple sketches of Erik and I by the lovely and talented Sierra Nicole Rhoden. You can read the interview with Nicole here.
